Pro-Line F-650 body on a Clod??

Hello. Newb here. Can anyone tell me if the Pro-Line F-650 body will fit on a Clod? Pictures would be even better!!

Yeah, it will work with extended wheel base. Might not look right on a stock Clod chassis build though.

I've got the sassy chassis and the clodzilla IV chassis. Would either of those work with the body?

I really love that body.

It will depend on your current wheel base. WB on that body is 13.8 inches long.

Length: 19.9" (505mm)
Width: 7.1" (180mm)
Height: 5.1" (130mm)
Wheelbase: 13.8" (350mm)

If you measure where the wheel nuts are from wheel to wheel (center to center) that is what your wheel base is. Those dimensions posted above are the body dimensions...

So in order for the body to look correct I need to make the wheelbase of my Clod 13.8"?

It does not have to be spot on but in the ball park. With Clod tires, IMHO you can have a longer wheel base and still look good. Its when the WB is shorter they tend to look funny.

This is an extended stock chassis with that body:
(a stock length body would be way to short unless you 4 linked it with longer than stock links)

Thank you for the pics!

I'll have to see what I can do with either the sassy chassis or the clodzilla IV.

so if my wheelbase is currently only 12 1/2" how can I extend it to the 13.8" for the F650 body?

Keep in mind, this Clod that I purchased was / is set up for pulling. It runs the Sassy Chassis but I also have a Clodzilla IV chassis I could use.

Measured the wheelbase again and its 13". Not 12 1/2". So I need to extend it 3/4" for the F650 body.

How would I accomplish this?

Longer links to move the axles farther apart, giving you the wheelbase you desire.

I'm pretty sure CPE still makes custom length links.
